The upper age limitation for IES exam for OBC (None Creamy Layer) category students
is 33 years.

As you have already crossed 30 so you have 2/3 attempts remained.
The excat cutoff date of birth for deciding the eligibility criteria shall be notified in the
advertisment of the exam. You definitely have two attempts remained but the third
attempt is doubtful because it age criteria is decided by cutoff date pulished in advt.
of the exam.

Make sure to have your OBC certificate at the time of applying for the exam.

Dear Sanu,

As you belong to OBC Category and your age is 30 years now , you are absolutely eligible for the IES Examination.

The IES (Indian Engineering Services) is conducted once every year by the Union Public Service Commission.

But apart from the age eligibility criteria , you have to check that whetehr you fulfill the other criteria too or not.

The Other Eligibility Criteria for IES examination are :


* Educational Qualification :


You must have completed your B.Tech in any one of the following streams :

a) Civil Engineering

You are eligible to give the IES examination because for the OBC Category candidates the upper age limit has been relaxed for up to three years which means that the upper age limit for you is 33 years. Thus you can give the exam because of this.

Examination Pattern:-
  • Paper I (Objective type): General Ability Test (200 Marks)
